The DPA IMK4060 is an instrument
microphone kit that includes the 4060 lavalier, DAD6001 Microdot to
XLR-male adapter, holders for stringed instruments, universal surface
mounts, magnet mount, foam windscreens, frequency altering protection
grids, and storage case.
The 4060-BM features an omnidirectional polar pattern, ideal
for close miking musical instruments. The omnidirectional pattern
provides a generous pick and even frequency response at the direct and
off-axis sections of the microphone capsule.
The lavalier is capable of withstanding sound pressure levels
up to 134dB, resulting in a high tolerance for transient (peaking)
audio signal without noise caused by distortion and overload. The wide
20Hz to 20kHz frequency response of the microphone allows the lavalier
to be used for capturing a wide array of signal sources. A high
frequency boost protection grid is included, providing a brighter,
"airy" response. The microphone is powered via 48V phantom power source
and is suitable for capturing strings, brass, woodwinds, guitar,
percussion and more.
